  Students who have taken part in various activities besides normal academic routines are likely to be more confident. As stated by the founder of Scouting Lord Baden Powell, “A week of camp life is worth six months of theoretical teaching in the meeting room”. In the camp, campers undergo variety of activities. Thus, being part of the activity is directly proportional to the building of Self Confidence and vice versa. The survey was carried out among the non-Scouts (n = 45; Male=14 and Female =31), Scouts (n = 45; male = 17 and Female = 28) and Leadership Scouts (n = 45; Male = 16 and Female = 29). Dr. M. Basavanna’s Self-Confidence and Lack of Self Confidence questionnaire within the total Cronbach’s alpha reliability coefficient of (α = .77), Self Confidence (α = .63) and Lack of Self Confidence (α = .87). The participants were administered using questionnaires on two areas, Self Confidence (20 Parameters) and Lack of Self Confidence (30 Parameters). The survey showed that there is a positive relationship with the number of activities students participated in the area of building Self Confidence (Non-Scouts<Scouts<Leadership Scouts) and the other way around.
